Chris Brown cannot keep his name outta the headlines. Just days after tweeting (and deleting) about how winning a Grammy was the “ultimate f–k off”, tales of a pickup line the R&B singer approached a woman with are stirring the pot of controversy again.
Multiple outlets are reporting that Brown has a new pickup line. According to Us Weekly, the recent Grammy winner approached a woman at the award show gift lounge with the line, “Can I get your number? I promise I won’t beat you.” While Brown and his friends reportedly had a laugh about the offensive come-on, it seems they may be the only ones.
But Brown’s rep told Us Weekly, “I’d be surprised if Chris said something that stupid.” Brown similarly released a statement to TMZ, saying “That is absurd and absolutely not true. I did not say that nor would I joke about that.”
Since Brown exploded back onto the scene Sunday night with his performance at the 54th annual Grammys, it has been nothing but a comedy of errors for the 22-year-old star. Although Brown had plenty of his own fans defending him against the backlash, he still felt the need to speak up for himself. But unfortunately for the singer, and his PR team, his choice of words left little room for forgiveness.
Early Thursday, reports surfaced that Brown attended Rihanna’s Caribbean-themed birthday party the previous night, appearing very friendly with the birthday girl and further fueling rumors that they have plans to reconcile. But Brown reportedly wanted to keep his appearance quiet, allegedly asking partygoers to sign a confidentiality agreement, to keep his presence at the gathering unknown.
